The Hangover 2

October 29, 2010

By Kurt Proske

The sequel to the most financially successful R-rated comedy ever to spring from The United States, The Hangover2, revolves around Mike Tyson and millions of laughs and dollars. Round two is clamoring to huge expectations, considering the fact that the first film brought in a whooping $467 Million and pocketed the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. Now I know what you are all thinking: its common knowledge that sequels normally are a sheer disappointment.

The Pre-obituary of Mother Earth

October 26, 2010

By Caroline Galeotafiore

There are so many questions, yet nearly no answers,
Like a choreographed routine without any dancers.
Life is like math without any numbers.
Add more problems to the equation, and it all will encumber,
Impede, and hinder the ability to live in this world,
To look around you and be amazed by all that’s unfurled.

October 26, 2010

By Arianna Johnson

This time of year, everyone sets out to search for that perfect pumpkin to carve. For Halloween, you always have to find a pumpkin which is big enough and has the right shape in order to create the best Jack-O-Lantern. However, as delicious as pumpkins may be - in pies for Thanksgiving and otherwise - there is another oddly shaped vegetable that tickles my fancy in the fall: squash!

The Reclaiming Darkness

By Peter Rice
October 11, 2010

A black dusty night enveloped a meek and dreary young boy,
Who walked up and down empty streets, waiting for people to meet.
While a trotting, he could smell pumpkins rotting, and—
From the trees came entreating whispers and tapings from the forgotten.
“Is there someone there who has begotten me?” trembled the weary young boy.
Replied the nameless, “Only me, your forgotten shame.”
